“How do I get started with Xamarin?”
I get asked this question a lot lately, thanks to Microsoft’s acquisition of Xamarin. Less than one month after Microsoft announced the Xamarin acquisition at Build 2016, interest in Xamarin went up 3 times.

This is good for developers who want to play with Xamarin and build their mobile skill set using their .NET competencies, and those who want to switch to cross-platform mobile development from native side. Not to mention, the businesses that were not able to deliver their mobile apps in multiple platforms all at once due to cost and resources. Now they can with lower cost and in a lot of cases, with existing technical resources available, specially if they are a Microsoft shop.
On my last project, I wanted to design one of the screens to look like Google Newsstand’s swiping tabs that were also scrollable and had an image between the ActionBar and the tabs.

I did not find any simple and useful solution to this that I could easily follow and implement in my app. So I created my own. Here’s how it looks like.
